    The Reds should have drafted a lot of other guys, but they didnt. Lets not let this turn into a Jeremy Sowers kind of thing, or a Scott Kazmir kind of thing, especially before Lincecum actually does something.

    Yep. I could not understand that one.

    Especially since Lincecum was pretty advanced and could have helped out in the pen during the 2007 season with the possible arrival of Bailey as well. Talk about both pitching units getting a shot of talent, Mercy. Buckley got Gabe Gross'd again

    from BP

    The No. 10 overall pick in June, Lincecum has had little difficulty adjusting to professional baseball. On a strict pitch count of 60, Linecum has struck out 21 of the 42 batters he has faced as a pro in his 10.1 innings, and has already touched 99 mph on several occasions. You get the feeling that some of the teams who picked before the Giants but stayed away from Lincecum because of his size are going to be sorry.

    Ahhhhh Ricardo, it seems that you've changed your tune since July 22nd of last year. IIRC, and I think I do, you were in an argument of who should be in the starting rotation, Jimmy Serrano, or Luke Hudson (fresh off the worst start in baseball history). Serrano was having success in AAA, while Hudson was pitching to his ability (not very good) in Cincy, but you seemed to think that since Serrano was 5'10" that there was no way that he could pitch in the majors, because his ball did not travel on a steep enough downward plane from the pitcher's mound to home plate.

    Now you're bashing the Reds for not drafting Linecum, a 5'10" pitcher, who has dominated a whole 10 innings of professional baseball...WoW!!! According to you he will never succeed in the majors anyways.

    Well, he said "starter", if he turns into a shutdown closer, which the Reds need, it hurts just as bad. One season you get 2 95+ pitchers arrive on the seen. Wow!!!

    i'm not sure your opinion, but most people don't like drafting relievers in the first round... whose the other 95+ guy we have?

    Re: Drew Stubbs sits bench with toe injury

    Everything I have seen on Lincecum stated his is 6'0", still short but not 5'10" or under.

    Not a bad attempt at a strawman to morph a comment about the 5'9" Serrano into one about the 6 foot Lincecum.

    his line from BA

    Tim Lincecum, rhp
    School: Washington. Class: Jr.
    Hometown: Renton, Wash.
    B-T: L-R. Ht.: 6-0. Wt.: 165. Birthdate: 6/15/84.
    BTW, that Oswalt guy is 6'0" tall.

    what about that martinez guy? and linecum is not 6'0" tall. the giants list him at 5'11", which probably is being generous. but maybe he's growing..

    which still happens to be taller than 5'10"

    I'm sure he'll be a 4'8" dwarf who wears elevator shoes by the time your finished.
